Poncjusz (382) - POLAND - DEC 21, 2017
Kolor hebanowy, brunatne klarowne refleksy, piana kremowa, średniej wielkości pozostaje na długo grubszy kożuszek, ładnie oblepia szkło. Słaby aromat, słabo wyczuwalny karmel, susz owoców, korzenne przyprawy. W smaku jasne owoce i przyprawy, w przejściu słód, subtelny karmel, na finiszu leciutko cierpkie odczucie bardziej od przypraw. Bardzo delikatne piwo, balans niezły, pijalność średnia bo to wszystko jakieś mało intensywne - rozrzedzone w każdej płaszczyźnie.

Backlog, przeciętny belgian strong ale. W aromacie czuć drożdzowe nuty. W smaku już niezbyt treściwie.

Ysok02 (1957) - Mons, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2017
Robe brune, mousse peu persistante. Nez sur le malt épicé, les épices, un coté torréfié. Bouche à l’attaque ample et épicée, bulle amère, ampleur moyenne, finale abrupte. Pas mon style.

nathanvc (887) - Brugge, BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2017
Bottle from a Carrefour in Bruges. Pours hazy brown with a red hue and a foamy, off-white head. The aroma contains roasted malt, caramel, yeast, hops, herbs, perhaps some zest and orange peel. It tastes medium sweet and light to medium bitter; faint sour hints and a herbal, hoppy finish. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Good balance, rather easy but enjoyable late night drinker.

JoeinDahlem (1611) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 11, 2017
First had one of these about a decade ago, back when Moeder Lambic in Saint-Gilles still had hundreds of bottles from across the country. It’s nice to revisit it. Pours a lovely dark chestnut brown, light beige foam not so resilient, lace not so sticky. Mellow aroma of stewed fruits, treacle, touch of vanilla, but none of that is really leaping out of the snifter. I have to dig for it. Leans sweet but not cloying, somewhat balanced by a light acidic tang and mild, earthy bitterness, clingy, somewhat resinous bittersweet aftertaste lingers long with a pleasant touch of alcohol warmth. It drinks far easier than its strength.
